Resumen This publication (prepared in cooperation between the Dutch Expert Committee for Occupational Standards (DEC) and the Swedish Criteria Group (SCG), whose criteria document on pyridine in the series Arbete och hälsa 1991:49 by M. Warholm has already been abstracted as CIS 93-610) presents an evaluation of the health hazards of exposure to pyridine. This substance is mainly used as a solvent and is also an intermediate in the production of e.g. pharmaceutical and agricultural chemicals. Attention is given to: identity, physical and chemical properties, analytical methods; toxicokinetic data; general toxicological effects in animal and humans (short-term exposure and long-term exposure); effects on organs; biochemical effects; reproductive effects and effects on pregnancy; mutagenicity; carcinogenicity; evaluation of human health risks. The critical health effect of pyridine seems to be its effect on the central nervous system and the liver. Based on the data available, the Dutch Expert Committee recommends a health-based occupational exposure limit for pyridine of 1mg/m3 (0.3ppm), 8h-TWA, with a skin notation. Detailed summary in Dutch.
